Hi, might anyone know it want yo hazard a guess as to what wheel set-up is on this car in terms of wheel size / make, spacers and lowering? Would like to get a similar look. Many thanks. Michael.

I believe they are the Tsw Watkins wheels. If I had to take a guess I'd say 19x8.5 et around 40, not sure what sizes they come in but that's a fairly aggressive offset and if you paired it with 245/35 tyres all round and were on say mss springs I think you'd achieve a similar look. Fills the guards very well although probably not very practical on some roads. RS3_Tom on Instagram has a similar style, different wheels though.

I'm not a fan of spacers at all which is why i went with oz racing who were confirmed fitment without needing spacers.

Those are Ispiri FFR1D, definitely 20" which would likely be 8.5J and ET42 but no clue if he's got spacers. Tyres look 235/30R20.

Car belongs to a lad on instagram called Dale (@daleed30) if you want to just ask and find out.

rogers17 on insta used to own that car originally before Daleed30 and he originally fitted the wheels. They are definately ispiri as said above. They are 8.5 wide and either et37 or 42. My ispiris are et37 and fit perfectly with no spacers. Mine are 19s though. :)

Such a good looking stance that, was the inspiration for my wheels which are ET38 8.5 x 19.

I love it, but it does make the car very low at the front :)

It would be touch and go I think.

Best wait and see if Jimo comes back as his being ET37, would tell you if there is any further leeway for 2mm - judging from his pic, I cannot believe there is though..especially if you are lowered as well.

I am running ET35, but mine are 8J and they are pretty close to the inner arches on compression - although I am not lowered.

A friend had Ispiri alloys With an offset of 37 and 8.5j.
He sold them after a while because they poked out too much.

When he showed me I must admit they weren’t to my liking, just looked wrong.

I’m running Et38 8.5 x 19 OZ racing Leggara HLT with the standard staggered tyre set up. Lowered on MSS dprings( soon to be B16’s even lower) perfect stance and no rubbing.

Look on my Instagram for pics @bigpetrolhead

Wow, that looks great. Is yours lowered at all?

Yes its lowered on H&R Springs. There is no rubbing with the pirelli wider front tyres but when i switched to michelin ps4s i got a bit of rubbing as they quite a bit wider than the pirelli 255s on the front. I had to remove an arch screw and trim a little plastic tab and now there is no rubbing at all :)

Ispiri wheels .. 8,5J ET 42 19”.. Will these fit on the front without spacers (to clear the calipier)???
Or ABT wheels .. 8,5J ET 45 19”.. these wheels do fit whitout spacers..
Don’t want spacers and don’t want that the tires rub ... frequently with 4 pers in car.
Tires 235/35/19 and lowered with eibach springs.
